It's hard to have an organized space without enough light, and closets are often a place where lighting is a problem. My first thought when seeing a dark closet involves either adding light fixtures with the help of an electrician, or using the battery-powered lights that are widely available. (Here's just one, and here's another.) If you want to add a wired light fixture, there are many possible designs; Rejuvenation has some suggestions.
But a few months ago, Closets magazine had an article on closet lighting which introduced me to an interesting specialty product. Hettich makes a battery-operated illuminated garment/coat rail that uses LED technology.
Another option for a dark closet could be a solar tube; this one comes from Solatube.
